President Barack Obama signed a declaration of emergency to help the Hopi Tribe and the Navajo Nation recover from a severe winter storm.

Supplies were being flown and driven to the two reservations, where people were blocked in due to high snow and deep mud. "They're very much still in emergency response, trying to get coal, wood, medical supplies and food to those communities, Sherrie Collins, the emergency manager for Coconino County, told The Arizona Daily Sun.
